Monitor Text Messages

Worried about what your child is texting on the Android smartphone you provided them? Now you can monitor all of their text messages and take control when there is trouble with PhoneSheriff. When you install PhoneSheriff onto the cell phone that you own, you will be able to monitor text messages online.

Not only can you monitor text messages and other activities performed on the cell phone, you can also filter content in order to block access certain contacts. After you select a contact to add to the blacklist, you child will not be able to send or receive text messages from that contact.

No wonder parents choose PhoneSheriff over any other leading brand for their cell phone monitoring needs. You'll be amazed by the online control panel that gives you detailed logs of their activities, and allows you to set filters and restrictions such as:

Restrictions and Alerts

SMS Monitoring Helps You Identify Problems

Your child likely sends or receives hundreds of messages per week. Much of the connection is done by texting. When your child is texting, it is important for you to be able to monitor their text messages in order to keep them safe from dangerous activities. That's why PhoneSheriff is number one choice for child smartphone monitoring.

Blacklist Contacts to Stop Calling

Your child is constantly calling her friends and usually seems excited and happy when she does. But lately she seems withdrawn and goes to the other room when calling. With PhoneSheriff installed, you are able to monitor text messages, call info, and contacts from the online control panel to see what is going on. If there is a problem and you want to stop her from sending and receiving calls from certain people, then you can use PhoneSheriff to set up a blacklist and block contacts.

Our daughter stole our truck, bank cards, credit cards and the mobile. The only way to find her was by tracking the SMS with your safety software. The police were able to catch her with the messages. Adam D.
